Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton accused the Russian government of “grooming” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) to run as a third party candidate – and now President Donald Trump is defended her. 

“She’s accusing everyone of being a Russian agent,” Trump told reporters of his 2016 general election opponent.

Last week, Clinton stated in a podcast with former President Barack Obama‘s campaign manager David Plouffe that Russian operatives are grooming a third-party candidate. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill later confirmed that Clinton was referring to Gabbard.

Trump provided his own commentary on Clinton and Gabbard’s quarrel. “So now Crooked Hillary is at it again! She is calling Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard ‘a Russian favorite,’ and Jill Stein ‘a Russian asset,’” he tweeted Saturday. “As you may have heard, I was called a big Russia lover also (actually, I do like Russian people. I like all people!). Hillary’s gone Crazy!
